Andrew thinks he can get out of debt [I guess I should say "we"] if we move to Idaho and live with his folks. They wouldn't charge much in rent [from $325 here to around $50 there] and ta-da, money problems solved!

Except I won't be happy, and he probably still won't have the job of his dreams, and we haven't solved anything except that now we are mooching off someone else. Oh, and he doesn't even like Idaho. He moved here because he didn't want to be stuck there.

I'm so frustrated with this situation. Apparently it's my fault, and I know good and well I haven't been ideal; I'm schluffing through school and I don't do much around the house and I don't have a job, but still... and no, he wouldn't say it's all my fault. My poor Nana blames herself. Come ON.

I have cried and cried about this. I don't know what to do. I don't want to move, and I don't think it will solve the problem of money, and even if it helps, we won't be any happier.

Have you ever heard of Dave Ramsey?

I suggest visiting his site and buying his book for debt help.. I know many people he's helped personally. He doesn't ask for money, he's not a trick. He knows what works and it does work.


Don't move if you don't have to. Moving costs money, too. Give him a shot, read/listen to his stuff. Follow him on facebook.

:) I don't mean to be nosey. I just want to be helpful.

Yeah, Friends Locked posts -- but even so, I don't post much to LJ since I use other social sites like Facebook and Twitter. Ever since getting into GUDU, though, I've tried posting a little more to LJ.

The move went well, we've been here for over a year now. Did it end up working out...ehhh, not so much. We're jobless, and living with the in-laws (who are GREAT, btw, no fighting or anything). Less debt, yes, because we both had some temp jobs that took away some debt, but we certainly can't survive on our own without jobs. The market is really hard right now, and I've applied to so many postings, and I've met my share of scams (just had one today, actually, from "Sterling Placement" -- a phishing scam).

Anyway, doing the day-at-a-time thing, and see where it goes! Thank you for asking, though :)
